Judy's Affordable Vintage Fair

It's the second time I attend this fair and all I can say is that you have to be very patient. Whenever you decide to go you won't avoid the crowd. This is the reason why the photos aren't very good.
However, I really liked the nostalgic atmosphere that they created: old music, nice people, tea and cupcakes.
Here are a few items that caught my attention.

P.S. For daily news and more information you can now find me on facebook at Royal Allure.


How lovely is this '50 pink dress

Vintage Christian Dior shoes

Can you believe that this Moschino belt wasn't for sale? Why would you bring it to the fair then? Why?!

And this is the beautiful Guildhall building where the fair has been held.

Mirror, mirror...

A while ago I was invited to Dior to test some new products and also get my make-up done. You can't imagine how obsessed I become when it comes to Dior. I always like to have a natural look, so they used a light foundation, nude eye shadows and brown eyeliner.

1. Firstly, they cleaned my skin and get it ready for make-up.

Then, they chose and applied the foundation, brushes and the eyeliners.

3. And finally the eye shadows

After this experience I fell in love with Nude Glow foundation. It's light and flawless perfect for summer days. It doesn't have a full coverage so if you have visible blemishes and problems with your skin it won't help too much.

At the moment, my favourite products for daily make-up are:

During the day I use Nude Glow foundation as I mentioned before. Diorshow mascara defines your eyelashes and has an amazing brush.

In the evening, I use Dior Forever foundation and Dior New Look mascara. This mascara give your eyelashes a lot of volume and also has a treatment which protects the eyelashes and makes them thicker. 

Chanel Natural Finish Loose Powder. The best powder I have ever tried!

Too Faced La Vie En Rose blush and Sephora brush.

Diorific lipstick by Christian Dior from Grand Ball limited edition and Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat. Do you notice how the lipstick's details are so similar to my vintage earrings? 

Unfortunately the writing on these two products has faded because I keep them in my bag most of the time. Dior eyeliner and Chanel Levres Scintillantes lipgloss. 

These are my everyday beauty essentials.



This is my last post about favourite places. Don't misunderstand me, I like big cities like Paris and New York. In these three posts I wanted to write about the places that make me feel like home. Cambridge is where I live now and all I can say is that I find myself quite attached to this little town. It makes you feel like you're living in a novel and every corner smells like "history". This post is meant to be simple and natural because of  the instant photos taken in different days which pretty much sum up my life here.


Such a bad picture of King's Chapel. Next time I will take my camera.
